Chipotle Aioli Butter Babies™ Potato Salad
1 1/2 pounds Butter Babies™ potatoes, halved lengthwise
2 1/2 to 3 teaspoons kosher salt
3/4 cup (5.3-ounce single serving container) plain Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons lemon juice (about 1 lemon; Meyer, if available)
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 chipotle chile*, seeds removed and chopped (from 7-ounce can of chipotle chiles in adobo sauce)
1 teaspoon adobo sauce* (from can with chiles)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 medium red onion, chopped
Place Butter Babies™ potatoes and 2 teaspoons salt in saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer 15-20 minutes until just tender. Drain potatoes and cool.
In large bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, lemon juice, mayonnaise, smoked paprika, remaining kosher salt, pepper, chopped chile, adobo sauce, and minced garlic until combined. Add bell pepper and onion, then mix until combined.
When potatoes are cooled, add to bowl and gently toss with yogurt mixture until combined. Serve at room temperature, or cover and chill until ready to serve. Will keep about 3 days refrigerated.
Note: Adjust amount of chipotle to your desired heat level. If sauce becomes too spicy, add more mayonnaise to mellow out heat.
Additional Serving Suggestion
Instead of tossing aioli and potatoes together, place cooled potatoes on a platter with other fresh vegetables. Pour aioli into a small serving bowl and serve with vegetables as dipping sauce.
* Chipotle chiles in adobo sauce are dried, smoked jalapenos preserved in tomato- and vinegar-based sauce. Chile seeds are spicy, so remove for milder heat. Leftover chipotle chiles can be frozen in bundles wrapped in plastic wrap.
